31 October

Halloween Special: Frank Oz directs this musical horror comedy starring Rick Moranis and Ellen Greene. Seymour Krelborn (Moranis), a shy young man working for a tyrannical florist, finds a vehicle for private and public success in the form of a man-eating plant from outer space. The carniverous shrub helps him to become a celebrity, gets rid of his boss and clears the way for him to woo Audrey (Greene), the girl of his dreams. However, the plant's cannibalistic eating habits become insatiable and it's up to Seymour to cut it down to size...

The director's cut restores Frank Oz's original intended ending that in 1986 was deemed too dark and was replaced with a different ending for theatrical release. 

Based on the 1960 Roger Corman cheapie that featured a young Jack Nicholson, Little Shop boasts a hilarious, amazing score by Howard Ashman and Alan Menken, who would go on to revitalise Disney's animation arm with The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast.
